WooCommerce 2.1 to be released Monday 10th of February

We have just tagged the second release candidate of WooCommerce 2.1. This marks the final stage of the new version and we’re certain it’s as stable as it gets. Just to make sure we haven’t missed anything, we’re going to leave it for everybody to test during the weekend and release the final right after.

Yes, you read that right! The final release of WooCommerce 2.1 is going to be available within 72 hours from now. If we don’t find any show stopping bugs in the next few days, the final will be tagged and made available on WordPress.org around noon UTC on Monday.

If you want to help testing in these final hours, pick up a copy of the code and open an issue if you find anything out of the ordinary. Please always be as detailed as possible about version numbers, steps to reproduce and other information that helps in getting an issue solved as quick as possible. You can also still contribute translations, through our Transifex project, to be included in the final release.

Note for developers: I hope this applies to nobody, but if your plugin or theme relying on WooCommerce is still not made compatible with WooCommerce 2.1, this is the last weekend you can do something about it. Read our beta 1 announcement for all the details that you probably want to check.

Have a great weekend, prepare for an exciting Monday! 🙂

    Great news indeed! 🙂

    By the way, the list of cities/states/countries names is getting very huge, maybe would be a nice move to split translation of these strings to a standalone .po file like WordPress core did a while ago. This would reduce translation files size and memory usage (the same reason because WordPress did it).

  3. I am using wordpress 3.8.1 and i resolved a problem with new order emial notifivatiosn. Please take a lookhttp://wordpress.org/support/topic/problem-solved-woocommerce-new-order-email-not-sending?replies=1#post-5208494

  4. It seems to me that WC 2.1 has a problem with some permalinks. At the moment i use WC 2.1RC with Twenty Twelve theme and somehow permalinks on My Account page for View order, Change password and Edit Address not working. I set up pages for them but they are not showing up.

    Either the “404 error” is shown or i can see only website with shortcode. I tested it on two sites and same problem on both on them. Switched back to WC 2.0.20 and everything is working fine.

    1. Janek, read the original beta-1 announcement here. These nested pages have now turned into endpoints:

      Ewout is right. Also please submit bugs you find on github, they’re much more likely to get seen there.
